Mills went for 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, one steal and one block over 23 minutes in Thursday's 97-90 win over the Grizzlies. The veteran sharpshooter stepped up for his fifth double-digit scoring effort over the last seven games and has now hit or eclipsed the 60 percent mark from the field in the last two contests. Mills' playing time remains consistent and he's also good for the occasional start whenever Tony Parker is sidelined or given the night off. As such, he remains a very viable add at his stage of the season for owners needing help in the areas of scoring, shooting percentage and three-pointers, while he also remains capable of offering solid production in the assists category. Mills is now averaging 10.4 points, 4.3 assists and 1.5 rebounds across 25.8 minutes in 13 March games.
Mills produced 21 points (8-13 FG, 5-7 3Pt), four assists, two rebounds and one steal over 21 minutes in Saturday's 107-85 win over the Warriors. With Tony Parker (back) out of action, and Kawhi Leonard (concussion) and LaMarcus Aldridge (heart arrhythmia) also out, Mills stepped up with his third double-digit scoring effort of the last six games. The veteran sharpshooter's five three-pointers were the most he'd drained since Dec. 23 and equaled a season high. Despite his usual bench role, Mills has seen at least 20 minutes in six of seven March games, and is averaging a solid 9.7 points, 3.4 assists and 1.4 rebounds across 25.3 minutes in the current month.
Mills will start at point guard for Saturday's tilt against the Warriors, Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports. With the Spurs down Tony Parker (back) and Dejounte Murray (groin), Mills will draw the start and will likely be in line for heavy minutes. The 28-year-old point guard has had spotty minutes all year, but is averaging 9.6 points, 3.3 assists, and 0.8 steals across 21.7 minutes per game.
Mills finished with 17 points (6-9 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding 10 assists, a rebound and a steal over 27 minutes in Wednesday's 114-104 win against the Kings. With LaMarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard out of the lineup to rest there was plenty of slack for the rest of the Spurs to pick up. Mills certainly did his part, posting his first double-double since April 26, 2012. Despite the solid outing he remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy options when the Spurs are fully staffed.
Mills submitted three points (1-9 FG, 1-6 3Pt), one rebound, one steal and one block across 32 minutes in Saturday's 97-90 overtime win over the Timberwolves. For the second straight night, Mills saw the bulk of the time at point guard while coach Gregg Popovich restricted starter Tony Parker's minutes, but the Aussie floor general's poor night from the field hurt any chance he had at bringing value in DFS. Mills' 4-of-9 performance from three-point range in Friday's win over the Pelicans appears to have been an outlier rather than a sign of what's to come for the 28-year-old, who has connected on only 26.7 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc over his last five appearances.
